Ryan J. Murray, PhD


I am a postdoctoral researcher in the Department of Psychiatry of the Faculty of Medicine at the University of Geneva. I received my doctoral degree in psychology in 2018 from the Swiss Center for Affective Sciences in Geneva, where I investigated how the brain treats subjective relevance in the general population.

Previously, I was granted a US Fulbright Scholarship to conduct developmental psychiatric research in Geneva, where I subsequently obtained two master degrees, one in psychology and the other in neuroscience. 

Currently, I am assisting in the acquisition and analysis of brain imaging and physiology data in a longitudinal double-blind clinical trial investigating the efficacy of mindfulness training on young adolescents (13-15 years) who are at-risk for anxiety. 

I am also collaborating with various research and clinical associations working to better understand the neurocognitive mechanisms underlying social interactions as well as resilience against mental illness. See my Research Interests and Publications for more.
